Describing himself as a passionate cricket fan, Google's Indian-American CEO Sundar Pichai on Wednesday, June 12, said he is "rooting for India to do well" in the World Cup Cricket tournament and predicted that the finals would be played between host England and India.

Google continues to execute on its $13 billion US investment plan by announcing on Thursday that it's expanding a data center in Oklahoma. "I am pleased to announce that we will be investing another $600 million to expand the data center here and create an additional 100 jobs for the Pryor community".

The investment is part of a wider Google initiative to pour approximately $13bn into data centre upgrades and expansions across more than 10 USA states in 2019.

The tech giant said Friday it would invest $600 million over the next year to develop a new data center in Midlothian - a community about 25 miles southwest of Dallas.

Google announced plans Thursday to expand its data center near Pryor for the fourth time since opening almost a decade ago.

Since then, Google expanded the center in 2012, 2016, and 2018.

Citing its data centers as among the most efficient in the world, Google says they use 50 percent less energy than the industry standard data center. The goals are part of Google's plan to target every Indian.

"The result will be a combined total of 260,000 square feet in office space, giving us the capacity to significantly increase our local workforce in the coming years", Ruth Porat, senior vice president and chief financial officer of SVP and CFO of Google and Alphabet, said.

To boost computer science education in the US, Google also announced on Thursday a $6 million grant to support 4-H, the largest youth development organisation in the US. "We want to change the perspective of young students around the country, that they can come to work for a company like Oklahoma whether they live in Mayes County, Oklahoma, or Silicon Valley".
